System Mastery 189 – New Gods of Mankind


Now here’s some good old fashioned back to basics shit.  Got to be, right?  Name like that?  Shirtless axe dude on the cover?  Well, color us surprised because this thing is basically the top down part of Actraiser as an RPG.  Neat ideas abound, but can it get to the desired double “would play?”

This week’s Announcement Masteries

  • Julian Kay (Alien Rope Burn): Blogs, columns, and roleplaying games par excellence!  Check out their excellent work and especially support that Patreon!
  • UnPlaytested Podcast and Stream:  Unplaytested is the show about games that have never been played before… because they never EXISTED before! On every episode of the Unplaytested podcast, Alex and Lara will roll a random result off a big list of your ludicrous suggestions for RPGs, and spend an hour figuring out how to actually turn that into a playable game.  They stream the resulting games too!

  1. Apparently, between the time that I sent you guys a copy from DriveThru RPG and now, this game went completely caput. DarkSkull Studios, the creator of the RPG, is nowhere to be seen now (their URL is up for sale and all social media accounts were deleted or privated) and it seems that DriveThru RPG no longer holds any of their products including this rpg.

    Anyway, love the system mastery and am glad that I got you guys the pdf when I did.

  2. Yeah that is weird that they just shut down all of their social media and pulled products places like Amazon etc.

    I was hoping that the author would shed some light on why he only mentioned the gods can go to Earth was mortal form (incarnation), but in the example of play in Fate Guide book, pg 117. It gives several other ways for them to come down and interact with mortals.
